GPM Metals Inc. provides an exploration update of The Weebigee and Sandy Lake East Gold Project

TORONTO, Aug. 27, 2015 /CNW/ -  GPM Metals Inc. (TSXV: GPM) (the "Company" or "GPM") and Goldeye Explorations Limited (TSXV: GGY) (the "Company" or "GGY") wish to announce the commencement of an airborne high resolution VTEM survey with 200 meter line spacing over 1264 line kilometers at the Weebigee property and the adjoining recently staked ground consisting of approximately 6,500 hectares in total.

GPM Metals is the operator of the project.

The helicopter airborne EM and Horizontal Magnetic Gradiometer survey will assist the Company in identifying geological structures and conductors that may indicate prospective diamond drill targets.

This survey will be undertaken by Geotech Ltd., Aurora, Ontario.

The Company also reports that a 4 man geological prospecting crew has been groundtruthing, sampling and mapping in the Sandborn Bay area since mid June of this year.

The prospecting field crew is scheduled to re-locate their exploration camp to the eastern section of Sandy Lake within the next 7 days, to continue their early stage reconnaissance field work and sampling.

GPM and Goldeye wish to thank the First Nation communities of Sandy Lake and Keewaywin for their co-operation and logistical support of this ongoing mineral exploration program.

About Weebigee

Weebigee is a high-grade gold project located near Sandy Lake, approximately 225 kilometers north of Red Lake and 200 kilometers west of Goldcorp's Musselwhite mine, in Northwestern Ontario.

Certain of the claims are subject to a 1% net smelter returns (NSR) royalty. The Project has a very promising potential based on its greenstone geology and known mineralization showings. Weebigee lies within the traditional territory of Sandy Lake First Nation ("SLFN") with whom Goldeye signed a comprehensive Exploration Agreement in 2013.
